Have you tried making coconut yogurt but haven’t had much luck? I get questions from a large number of people about the secrets to making a consistently good coconut yogurt that is tangy and thick and that doesn’t separate. My method is EASY and I get a perfect batch every time. You don’t need any fancy equipment and you don’t even need to have probiotic capsules on hand. This method uses leftover coconut yogurt which you […]
The winter solstice just passed exactly two hours ago. I love this day as it means the days will start to become longer again (here in the Southern Hemisphere, that is).

I buy a big 1kg tub of tahini from Pak N Save for about $13, which is more cost effective than the smaller […]

For any of you who don’t have a sourdough starter, or if you forgot to feed the starter before bread-making day, this recipe doesn’t require any preparation and still produces a beautiful bread with a great flavour and minimal effort.
